Waxing

Waxing is a form of hair removal which removes the hair from the root. For soft wax, warm wax is applied to the skin in a thin layer, the hair becomes embedded in the wax and a strip is applied and then pulled off quickly, in the opposite direction of the hair growth, taking the hair with it. For hard wax, warm wax is applied in a thick layer, the hair becomes embedded in the wax and is pulled off quickly without the use of a strip, removing the unwanted hair. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different human hair growth cycle.

Patients who are using Accutane cannot wax for up to 6 months of using the prescription.
